28mm Napoleonic Saxon line infantry (Calpe miniatures)
These figures are from Calpe miniatures. White is a very hard colour to paint. I have used various techniques to paint white and never settled on one. For the moment my view is that a white uniform should be mainly white, with subtle shading. That is hard to achieve in reality. For most purposes it is best just to paint the item white and use a very light grey or brown wash. I've done "highlights" of pure white after this. It takes quite a long time.
